In terms of employment, i would be very surprised if this transportation company becomes beneficial to our entire populace. It is quite possible that 90 percent of its workers might be from particular tribes, primarily those managing the company.

In the past two decades, the Biya regime have instituted a divide and rule policy that has fuelled not only tribalism but hatred at all levels of our society. We see tribalism in its most sadistic and savagery form. In state parastastals, we saw Niat Njipenji employing unqualified Bamilikie indigenes on the streets of bangante to work there, P&T is for the northerners, CDC was previously for northwesteners when Niba Ngu was there, during the regime of Musonge and now Njalla quan, it is for Bakweri's, etc. In private institutions in and around the country, UCB for Bamilikie, Amity bank is for banso people, NIS bank was for Bayangi, Chantier Naval is for those from Santa and sorrounding villages in Mezam, Marketing board is for Bafaw people, etc. That is La Republique of today.

That is the culture of La Republique and we must not try to learn any such vices from them.

Welcome 'Le Car'on the Douala-Yaounde highways.If you think your goal is to reduce the number of road accidents on this high way then you have only touched a tip of the iceburg. The answer to this question is not limited to bad driving nor poor technical states of the vehicles that pligh this road.Much of it lies on the state of the road;too narrow,limited road signs,many dips and rises, dangerous bends etc which the government of Cameroon has failed to answer. How can a 7ms wide road supports that hudge volume of traffic that is the case of this highway? Where does the proceed from the toll gates that cut accross this highway at certain intervals? The solution to problem is a double lane of two tracks on the highway. All thesame this is no cause for concern to the power that be since most of his gansters hardly use this road. All planned is not all achieved. The test of it is in the plighing of the road. Time will tell.

absolutely an idea to be encouraged.I just returned from Cameroon. Took a bus ride from Bamenda to Buea. AFter that ride, hell i will pay 2x6000 CFA the next time to get a comfortable right!

About curbing road accidents in Cameroon through adhering to stringent safety procedures sound very enticing. But when one starts driving on those roads,encounters sudden speed breaks without prior indicative signs, speed breaks that are rectangular, herds of cattle on the road, people jay walking on the highway, potholes, no road signs, unbelievable narrow roads, aggressive and drunk drivers, then anyone thinking of miraculously curbing the tradegies and deads on the cameroonian roads will have to factor in several parameters...AT the end it is a useless endeavour!
